Divine Love Ministries Wish List
by Thomas A. Stobie, SFO
What I do with funding if I received it for Divine Love Ministries. Currently many of the things I would like to do, I can not as I am overburdened with very high debt with no significant sources of income (unemployed, but looking).
Priority is not indicated by sequence of individual items and donors may restrict their gifts.
- Legally form Divine Love Ministries (DLM) as a 501(c) organization.
- Enable DLM to mass produce the prayer cards and distribute world-wide. This would probably be accomplished with agreements with major Catholic Publishers and Distributers.
- Start a catholic AM Radio statio in the Kansas City in Kansas Archdiocese broadcasting the EWTN radio feed with some local programming.
- Establish an endowment to permit DLM to advertize and provide free spiritual direction to those desiring it. This would include paying me (and maybe others) to provide spiritual direction full-time.
- Sponser a nationwide essay contest for high-school students in the area of 100% pro-life.
- Develop a program for grade school and high school students explaining and advocating the pro-life position.
- Buy national (US) advertising presenting the truth about catholic beliefs to counteract many of the false Protestant myths about Catholicism.
- Build a large community that would include a retreat center, buildings for single adults, buildings for families, buildings for married couples without small children, and common facilities built around the Christian ideal. Each living quarters has a small kitchen with a common communal kitchen and dining rooms used for most meals with residents taking turns cooking and cleaning the common areas.
- Expand our ability to create prayer and saint cards. This may include hiring an illustrator to produce quality images.
- Initiate a program to help those who are overwhelmed with debt, particularly due to prolonged unemployment. This would consist of transferring the debt to DLM with much lower interest rates and a promise to avoid future debt where possible.
